Olacabs, the up and coming aggregator of car rentals and point-to-point cab service company has announced a new SMS based cab tracking facility for all its users. For this, the company has partnered with Zipdial, a Bangalore based mobile marketing startup which recently received a round of funding from 500 Startups.
Users who book Olacabs from the web, mobile web or its app will now receive a Zipdial number in addition to all the usual details like cab registration number, Cabby’s name and distance. Users can give this Zipdial number a miss call and they will immediately receive an SMS which will tell them the cab’s distance from their location and the estimated time to reach in real time. The Zipdial service is free for all Olacabs users.
This new feature gives all its a customers a taste of the features that its smartphone customers enjoy. The Olacabs mobile app for Android allows users to get a whole of lot details related to the service and the rental. You can track the cab’s progress on a map using that app. These features are not really implementable for normal phone users. This Zipdial integration is the best way this can be carried out. It is commendable that the company has all their users in mind instead of only focusing on the mobile app users. The whole procedure seems easy enough and will help Olacabs customers have a good experience with the service. The service is available in all the sectors that Olacabs operates namely Mumbai, Delhi-NCR and Bangalore.
